Elsinore Sunrise Painting

This oil painting is based on a photo I took on Ortega Highway early in the morning. I was near the Lookout Bar and the sun was making beautiful colors in the clouds and on the water.

Mug Rugs

My fiber art group did a mug rug exchange. These are the mug rugs I made and sent out:









They measure around 8” x 10”. I used oil paint stick around a feather template to create the design. The edge is a flat yarn that is couched with a zig zag stitch.

Modjeska House Plein Air Painting

I started this at the Helen Modjeska Historic House and Gardens in Silverado, California several months ago, before Covid. I did not like the way it looked when I left that location and it sat for a long time waiting for me to figure out what to do to fix it. I've been taking painting classes and those helped me see a way to salvage it. It was almost completely reworked in my home studio, but never the less, it is finished now.

Happy Holidays!

I wish you the very best this Holiday Season! I know it's going to be challenging with the Covid situation because we won't be able to celebrate in all the ways we have in the past. But we have many blessings and if we remember those we will get through it. Before you know it, life will be back to normal. That is my hope and wish for us all. Best wishes to you and yours for 2021.

"All is Wright with the World"

I completed the fiber art piece I was making of my husband and his friend fishing. They were on the North Umpqua River in Oregon at a run called "Wright Creek". It shows two long time friends sharing time on a beautiful river. Hence the name, "All is Wright with the World". It measures 38" wide by 40" high.
